The roads were good. We started very early so that we could directly go to Tanjore and then go to the hotel for night stay. Next day we traveled to Madurai and came back to Trichy. Finally on the third day we left for Bangalore.

There were many Technical Colleges and Medical Colleges on the route. We did not know that Teaching has become a good business in South India.

This is a very good trip and enjoy each and every moment. I like the cauvery river, Rockfort temple etc... When i see from rockfort temple all things are in view from that place. Had a comfortable bus ride from Renganathan Travels which has Multi Axle Volvo Buses, timing was perfect from boarding point as well as destination point also. The Travels office was accessible very easily and is close to Central Bus stand.

Good to travel with Parveen Travels. Their destination punctuality was good. Their behavior was good. Totally everything was good. They need to improve boarding punctuality. If they gives charger point in each seat, it will be good. Space between 2 seats is conjuncted.

My opinion its good and comfortable, as I started with Rs 400 to spend my travel charge. That time SRM offered for my friend account, so that I knew about that travel, now I am also using. All are good. I think in festival time they increase the price. That one is not good but overall good.
